Web-Based Medical Library Catalog Serves Cutting-Edge Research.
The Pediatric Neuropathology Consortium (PNC) at a major local research university sought a firm to re-develop its website tool for tracking specimens. Intended to track specimens from previous and ongoing research projects, the Web application would allow a wide community of researchers to view gross and section images and staining results, and to request samples.
To realize this vision, PNC called on Dayspring, a firm with the capability for the initial implementation as well as the ability to support PNC’s Web development needs in the future.
The result: the creation of a high-quality tissue tracking system for human brain tissues from a wide range of ages. The university’s Pediatric Neuropathology Consortium (PNC) is helping transform research and patient care in Pediatric Neurology in California.
The Consortium combines the strengths of major medical centers, including those in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Davis, and conducts research in the area of pediatric neuro-developmental disorders.
The Consortium is supported by the university’s Multicampus Research Programs and Initiatives and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI).
